Kim Ji-hoon has emerged as one of South Korea's go-to directors for big, populist entertainment. In an industry that is increasingly trending towards low budget, high return fare - i.e. lots and lots of romantic comedies - Kim is going the other route. Big budget. Big action. Big spectacle. He did it with action-horror Sector 7
and now Kim is at it again with The Tower
Yes, this is essentially a remake of 1974 Steve McQueen star vehicle The Towering Inferno
and not to be confused with the Pang Brothers' currently in production 3D Hong Kong effort Inferno
. The first teaser for Kim's effort is freshly on the scene and it's got everything you could ask for from such a thing: A great big building and a great big fire. Plus, because it's Korean, a liberal dose of melodrama. Check it below.
